The shows I had seen before :
10-14-76 Shrine Then- loved it . Now , good, not great .
2-26- 77 Swing Then- "that was totally different from the Shrine show ...".
Now - WOW !
6-4-77 Forum Then and now . Good GOD !!
1-10-78 Shrine Then - wow ! Now - some ok, some WOW !
12-28- 78 Pauley Then- not as good as the previous shows . Now WOW ( only time I saw St. Stephen ).
Since the first Road Trips, I started listening more carefully to the 2nd half of 79 , and find a unique and enjoyable period, in the way 76 is ( in a different way). From that I have given a lot more respect to the early 80's shows also .
I am still a Keith guy ( this E72 set is blowing my mind , with night after night of peak Dead ), but some of this early Brent stuff is awesome in its own way .
At this point I like it more than the much more consistent, tighter late 80's shows .
